You made the statement:

"I submerge myself in the suicidal ideation more, and I am feeling weak and tired. To overcome the feelings of wanting to die, I usually stay active and busy and distracted, but I don't have the energy anymore. I've isolated myself as much as possible because I cannot carry on the facade that gets me through my days."

I was there many years ago. It wasn't until I took charge of my life and sought out psychopharmacology over psychotherapy , that I improved. I went through the T stuff, until I could take no more. In my experience my Ts (oh yes! several)were so biased that they really caused me undo suffering by not recommending antidepressants. Antidepressants did the trick.

All that psychobable (very pertinent term for this forum), didn't help at all. Insight can't help if your brain chemistry is too awry.

Please consider what I've written and do seek help immediately if you are feeling suicidal.

Also, it's an old book (1986), so it doesn't have info. on the newer antiDs, but it is a classic: "The Good News About Depression" by Mark s. Gold, MD. Please try to get a copy.

Best wishes
